Another blessing was we were less than a mile to home when this actually happened and being the time of day, we decided to continue on very slowly driving with absolutely no power steering and 2 hands gripped to the wheel. Ford said dealers will inspect the halfshaft and repair or replace as needed. I am hoping that the investigation reopens a new recall for expanded years of these Mkt models and possibly others before someone gets killed. The recall began on July 21, 2015. The affected vehicles have electric power steering assist systems that may shut down as a result of a steering motor sensor fault. If you close your window or tab, you must re-access the site through the X Plan Pricing website to ensure that all eligible plan pricing is visible. Leg room is great, controls and touchscreen are easy to use when navigating through the many features, and I like the option to switch between Normal, Sport and Comfort modes.
A few weeks ago I had a message that came across my dashboard that read services power steering and 2 sec later it read services power steering now. I have the elite and Tech packages, and I tell you, the adaptive cruise and lane keeping functions are indespensible now that I have run them. Engine leaks and related fire risks prompted the recalls. A bit late to say the least. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred.
In the affected vehicles, the fuel delivery module may develop a crack, allowing fuel to leak. The contact stated while driving approximately 60 mph, the power steering indicator illuminated, and the steering wheel seized. The recall is expected to begin in December 2015. My wife may not have been so fortunate. We had just got off the highway returning from my in-laws from 40 miles away. Had to tow the car back to my home.
Also, some dealers may choose not to participate in X Plan pricing. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the manufacturer was contacted. This is a fun vehicle to drive as the acceleration is excellent, especially for a vehicle of this size. The contact had not experienced a failure. While driving approximately 25 mph, the power steering assist warning indicator illuminated and the steering seized. Very unnerving and dangerous to suddenly lose steering while on the highway.
You get a lot for the money. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Three of the four recalls came under pressure from U. When we arrived back at the dealership she asked us on how we like the vehicle. Suddenly I lost power in steering wheel.
These vehicles may have been transported with rear brake rotor bolts that are not fully seated allowing the head to protrude above the wheel mounting surface. Also I have been stopped on several occations by people wanting to know what type of car I was driving because it was so pretty and has a perfect chrome package. The Finance department was exceptional also! The recall is expected to begin by August 29, 2014. The interior is beautiful and classy with all the bells and whistles that you could ever want. I have 52k miles on it already and we have taken it on two vacations. The first recall, for potentially leaky fuel tanks, affects 465,000 vehicles — 390,000 of them in the U.
One of the best features was the adaptive cruise control that I used while driving. I am convinced that many more would sell if people would just test drive this vehicle. The failure mileage was 33 and the current mileage was 3,500. Ford's recall campaign number is 13S04. Ford's number for this recall is 16S31. I am extremely happy that I was able to find a vehicle that fits my family, has a third row that won't require gymnastics, which has a sophisticated look, and which is fun to drive. The time of day was also a blessing in disguise because it was just about midnight and we were almost home so the kids could open some gifts.
Automakers have recalled nearly 40 million vehicles in the United States this year, an all-time record that shatters the 30. I will walk in to dealer first thing on Monday the 20th of July. The failure mileage was 70,000. We knew that this was the vehicle for us. The recall is expected to begin on July 15, 2013.
